Tropical Print + Distressed Shorts: Weekend Style

Hey friends,

This weekend was pretty laid back. Seemed like a weekend to catch up on sleep because I sure did a lot of it! The floral patterns of spring have transitioned into the summertime tropical print perfect for living in a state with year round tropical weather 🙂  Although June 1st also brought with it the start of Hurricane season here and unbearable 90 degree days on the daily. It’s pretty suffocating. I may have to relocate to a nudist colony until it’s over LOL! I’m also still noticing maxi dresses and other cute pieces with pineapples on them…one I’ve had my eye on is currently out of stock at F21 hope it comes back sometime soon! Today I’m wearing a strapless tropical print top I got last summer with one of my favorite pair of distressed denim shorts. Wore this look for the road trip down to the Florida Keys and it was totally comfortable and by the way, wrinkle free after being in the car for almost four hours! Can’t beat that!

So if you follow me on social media you’ll notice that your girl finally has herself a …dare I say it…. boyfriend! I’ve mentioned off and on throughout my time here in blog land my love life or lack thereof and that I’d been trying to get myself out there a bit more because after all, you can’t meet someone by staying home all the time. I also wanted to be more social and hang out with friends a bit more as well.  For a while the being more social part was in the lead; finding my weekends filled with activities, traveling with the girls and so on, and then suddenly when I wasn’t expecting it, there he was 🙂 They say that’s how it happens, when you’re not really looking. He’s definitely been a breath of fresh air and I’m enjoying getting to know him. Looking forward to seeing  what more this grows into!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Happy Monday gals and gents,

Another great weekend in the books. Saw the movie “The Perfect Guy” this weekend as well. I liked it, it was good. Not sure I’d say it was amazing but I generally don’t get to hyped up about a movie unless it involves a ton of violence, action and gore LOL. I’m a bit loopy that way!  I’m rocking another look by Choies today. This is another off the shoulder look with a twist 🙂 I love it with my gladiators, but it would look just as stunning in heels or other flat shoes. Hope you had an amazing weekend as well!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
